Different Types Of Road Traffic Accident Claim We Conduct In Luton
Luton car accident claims solicitors see many different types of road accidents occur each year. Many of these will be quite minor, but some will be extreme cases with serious injuries caused to the victims. The most common types of road traffic accidents in Luton that we have historically seen are covered below.
Luton Car Accident Claims
Some types of accidents that an accident specialist Luton might see are not frequent enough to warrant their own section. This includes accidents involving learner drivers, heavy goods vehicles, emergency services, etc. No matter how the accident happened in Luton that injured you, we should be able to help you claim compensation.
Passenger Traffic Accident Claims In Luton
All car accident claims solicitors know that passengers have exactly the same rights as drivers when it comes to claiming compensation for an injury that was caused by a road traffic accident in Luton. If you are injured while riding in a car belonging to friends or family, or while riding on public transport, a passenger can claim for any injury they sustain in a road traffic accident.
Luton Taxi Accident Claims
Every taxi and minicab driver in Luton are required by law to have a valid insurance policy to cover them if a passenger is injured during a car accident in Luton. If you are injured by a taxi driver who does not have such a policy, you can claim against the driver themselves.
Luton Bus And Coach Accident Claims
If you are travelling as a passenger in Luton on a bus, coach or minibus, and the vehicle is involved in a road traffic accident which results in you being injured, then you will be able to make a compensation claim. In these cases, it will be the company that operates the bus, minibus or coach service that we will make personal injury claims against.
Pedestrian Accidents In Luton
Pedestrians are often the most seriously injured of all people we see who have been harmed in a road traffic accident in Luton. This is because without any protection when a pedestrian is hit by even the slowest moving vehicle, the result can be catastrophic. If you are hit by a vehicle while walking in the street in Luton, a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you make a compensation claim.
Rear End Road Traffic Accidents In Luton
Whiplash is the most frequent injury that a personal injury solicitor will see in road traffic accident claims, and it is rear shunt type accidents that are the most common type of accident that can cause whiplash. A rear shunt, even a slow one, can damage the neck of the driver of the vehicle that has been hit.
Roundabout Accident Compensation Claims
A roundabout, especially during rush hour when the roads are busy, is one of the most common places that a road traffic accident could occur, resulting in an injury that forms the basis of a personal injury claim. Young and inexperienced drivers are especially at risk on large, complex roundabouts.
Common Injuries Suffered After A Car Accident In Luton
As long as you are ready to make a compensation claim within the personal injury claims time limit of 3 years, then no matter what injury you have suffered due to a road traffic accident in Luton, Legal Expert can help you to claim for it. Some types of injuries are more frequently seen in road traffic accidents, and these are outlined below.
Neck and Whiplash Injuries
The single most frequent injury sustained in car accidents in the UK every year is whiplash. The neck can be injured very easily by the sudden force of the head being moved sideways or backwards to forward. Whiplash is also a difficult injury to prove the severity; we can help you to get a local medical examination in Luton to support your whiplash claim.
Pain In Your Back
Back injuries can be caused in much the same way that whiplash is caused. But in these cases, the damage is much more extensive, with the upper back and spine being damaged in some way in a road traffic accident in Luton. All Luton accident lawyers will be able to help you to claim if you have had your back injured in a car accident.
More Severe Injuries
Luton personal injury solicitors will also be able to represent people who have suffered serious injuries that were not covered in the sections above. Such as loss of an arm or leg, permanent brain damage, or critical damage to an internal organ such as the liver or kidneys.
